Voting Data

Each year we encourage all students to register to vote and vote whether that be on or off-campus. Please check out some of the other pages for info on how to register, voting on campus, and how to verify your voter registration.

National Study of Learning, Voting and Engagement

Each year we participate in the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) along with more than 1,000 other colleges and universities. NSLVE is a signature initiative of the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education (IDHE) at Tufts University’s Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life. The mission of IDHE is to shift college and university priorities and culture to advance political learning, agency, and equity. We achieve our mission through research, resource development, technical assistance, and advocacy.

Montclair State Data
